THE GUARDIAN IS "LEGITIMATE"?
A liberal discards his ignorance—but maintains his piety:
In my previous Sharp Note, I thought it might be fun to ridicule George Bush’s infamous photo op with the plastic turkey. However, other than the Guardian, there were few legitimate news links to the plastic turkey story. Right wing bloggers and others have pointed out that the plastic turkey story was not exactly true. In the absence of any real evidence that the turkey in question was actually plastic, I concluded that the right-wing bloggers were probably right on this point.
It’s taken him more than two years. We’re not exactly talking about a MENSA entrance exam here.
The fact that I am willing to give Bush the bird (so to speak) is, I think, a very tiny example of what it means to be a liberal. Confronted with a lack of supporting evidence and claims to the contrary, I was able to change my dearly held assumption about Bush’s bird ...
If he can show me other liberals who’ve changed their minds when confronted with evidence to the contrary, our flexible friend might be on to something. Usually they just roll themselves into a ball and chant: “Fake but true! Fake but true! Fake but true!”
I challenge all other right wingers and GOP men to be as open-minded as me on important matters of poultry and politics.
Start with your own side, mate.
